Ava Was Amazing!

Ava couldn’t have been a more perfect child for Sherry and Nik’s wedding. She made us so proud! She walked down the aisle perfectly, played all day without a fuss and danced the night away. Ava was a riot. Today made us feel like proud parents.

Ava the Flower Girl

We went to Sherry and Nick’s rehearsal dinner tonight. Ava is a flower girl in the wedding. She walked with Jayden and Natalie and all three girls were just precious!


“I See My Shadow”

I remember making silly body shapes with my shadow. Ava enjoyed her shadow this past week.

It’s Officially Easter

The whole family celebrated Easter in the forest. We went to Swallow Cliffs in Palos and soaked up the sun. It’s in the 70’s today and we took advantage of the weather. We’ll be dying our eggs later today.

Hunting for Easter Eggs

We went looking for Easter eggs a second time this weekend. Dave, Ava and I went Mary Bartelme Park and found eggs and played a few carnival games. A beautiful sunny Saturday!

Big Girl

Dave and I blinked and Ava turned into a big girl! She thinks and acts like a toddler.
We gave her a regular cup (training cup) for a little practice. She did very well and loves to drink out of it.

I’m in love with Ava’a feet! They’re soft and oh so cute!
She loves to fall asleep with one leg up on me or Dave.

A Warm Front

We had sunshine and 60’s here today. This was a temporary relief from this long, cold winter. Ava and I spent the entire day outside. We went to Old Orchard’s playground and spent the rest of the day in the deck or in the courtyard. Summer is going to be amazing!

Shedd Aquarium

Sunday family fun day was held at the Shedd this past weekend. Dave and I enjoy seeing Ava run to the tanks and point at the sea creatures. She loved the creatures as much as the gift shop!It was just warm enough to snap a family photo by the lake.

All Jacobs Must Love Sushi

Anyone that knows Ava’s Dada knows that sushi is my favorite food in the world.  I could eat it every day forever without ever getting bored.  Nothing makes me more happy and proud than seeing my little doll face eat some sushi on her own.  Just a cucumber roll but it is a good start.

Looking Forward To Spring

We can’t wait for spring to arrive after a very long brutal winter. Here a couple random pictures from the last couple days. My favorite is Ava’s bed head from her nap.

Awesome Family Local Vacation

We took a local vacation to get out of the city and enjoy a indoor water park since this winter has been so brutal and is never-ending. We went to Keylime Cove in Gurnee for 2 nights and Ava had a blast. We enjoyed the water park and ran around the hotel plus we played lots of games and won lots of toys in the different crane games. Saturday afternoon we went to Jump America so Ava could jump on the trampolines. We had to break the rules since the jumping was for kids 3+ but we got away with it for about a half hour and Ava had a blast. Fun weekend and more great memories for the Jacobs Family….

Ava and I are exploring all of the indoor places in Chicago. It’s been cold and snowy here for many months and we need to get out of the house and explore. Ava learned about Chicago’s history and saw many artifacts.
